I'm looking to get new skis, but looking for a bit of input. I live near Crystal Mtn. so do most of my skiing there..when there's snow. About one month ago I went to a demo and the skis that seemed best to me that day were: Nordica Speedmachine 14 /170, Dynastar Legend 8000/172, and Solomon Hot 175. I realize that these are different types of skis, and I'm looking to find something that I could use most of the time. I'm 59, about 5'8" and 175 #. Last winter I took up the sport after a few years break, and found that the new equipment has really improved the fun factor, along with the improved grooming, etc. Last year I bought some Dynamic xr 17/170's and they are a fair ski, but not very good at higher speeds. More of an intermediate ski. I ski mostly on the groomed or fresh snow, find that my knees don't like a lot of moguls, but I like to go pretty fast with the larger turns. I really liked the Nordicas and the Dynastars, haven't tried Elans, K2, or Fischers. This is a great site by the way!!!! Any ideas???
